Chester Brown on Writing 'Louis Reil'

This snippet from an interview by Chester Brown on how he wrote 'Louis Reil':

Interviewer: How did you go about constructing "Louis Riel"? Was there a script, or did you work on it chapter by chapter?

Chester: There was a complete script for it. It was done in pretty much the same manner that can be seen in the American Splendor movie. I would take a piece of paper and divide it into six panels, write the dialogue and indicate with stick figures where the characters were supposed to be positioned. Then I went back and did the finished book.
